Arlington anesthesiologist's other car is a British tank

One day while I was leaving my Pulmonologist's office, I noticed this mini tank sitting over in the next parking lot. I had to go over and check it out. There was another guy looking it over, and neither one of us knew what the heck it was. Well, now we know.

From the Star Telegram:

By O.K. Carter

It is a Ferret Scout

On the rare occasions that Michael Henderson gets in a hurry and motors his street-legal tank onto a local interstate, the outcome is inevitable. The vehicle, technically a rubber-wheeled, tanklike armored car called a Ferret Scout, draws a crowd of motorized gawkers.

"Next thing I know, they're in tight all around me checking out the tank, and I can't change lanes to make my exit," says Henderson, an Arlington resident and a staff anesthesiologist at Arlington Memorial Hospital. "I learned pretty early that I better stay in the right lane."
Now that is to cool.

Ummm why use "Tank" when it is "technically an armoured car"? Journalists amaze me! :-)
